Instilling love for the Quraan in the heart of one's child

Q: My husband and I have been blessed with a baby alhamdulillah. We would like the baby to have finished memorising the Quraan by an early age if Allah wills.

What steps can we take to ensure that the child can begin learning and memorising from an early age? What brain foods would also be good for the child and mother as I’m nursing currently.

A: Ensure that you instill the love of the Quraan Shareef in the heart of your child by reciting it in a melodious voice in his presence or playing the recording of the Quraan Shareef. Don't let your child get anywhere close to technology and smartphones.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
